Ezarcher Linux 202108 Updates – August 2021 Changes & ISOs Released
Calamares has been updated in the templates and the tar file to version 188.8.131.52 and the netinstall module is now compiled into the package. I have not used the netinstall module, but it is there if you want it and I may experiment with it in the future. The etc-pacman.d-gnupg-mount systemd unit is finally removed from the installation when Calamares finishes, and the pacman-init.service is adjusted to not require the tmpfs mount of the gnupg folder. It has always worked in the past, but now its just cleaner.
I noticed haveged, the little program to help increase random entropy number generation, was missing from the packages file, so the systemd unit was doing nothing – so that is fixed and haveged is now installed again. I also noticed that pacman-init.service relied upon the auto tmpfs mounting of the /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/ directory, and I had mistakingly removed that during the Calamares install, so that is also fixed. Both systemd units that were not functioning should now be good to go. Thanks for your patience! 🙂
